No thread? No pics? Didnt happen .... Time to start showing us your progress.
The northern part of our planet is now to cold for homebrew to set... Our great southern land is either to hot to venture outdoors or cyclonic. Your It.

hey Dave

I'm still here and not finished. Guess I should load the photos of progress since Xmas. Not much progress though I just didn't feel the photos justified loading as work has been very sporadic as I am waiting for a moron to ship bull nose bricks [same as my house bricks] from a - b. have been waiting now for 3 weeks.


Point is I pass his storage yard every day as a part of my job, I can see them and smell them but I cannot get them, as he wont meet me there but insisits on getting them to his yard up the road from where I live. Especially when I only need about 22. Took me 3 weeks to locate these bull nose bricks they are only 5 km from my home.
MOST ANNOYING AND EXTREMELY FRUSTRATING.

Can't believe this weather. If only the oven was finished there would be no need to cure it the aussie sun would be doing that for us. Oh well we'll get some more done one of these days.
Sorted the deco arch it will be sandstone. A mate is a sculptor and is doing a swap. Canopy pilot training for a beaut arch.
But with the fire risk lately we would not have been using it or wanted to fire it anyway

Well hubby is back on the tools stopped throwing himself out of planes for a while. Tiles are cut and in place. Including where the arch sits. Ugg. I think that is the most daunting part of the whole thing. I'll post some pics of that when I get a chance.
